“You’ve heard of dig for victory, now it is time to eat for Britain.”
Over the 2017 winter Joe and I (Harriet Godwin) made our first tentative steps back into the world of British farming. Since my father sold his dairy herd and moved into the more commercial world of ice cream production and camping we have had to let farming here take a back seat. Finally, after nearly 15 years Manor Farm is now making a come back with the next generation of budding enthusiasts.
Joe and I purchased our first 16 store lambs on the 16th August 2017. They clearly turned us insane because we are now the proud owners of 79 ewes here at Manor Farm. No flock is complete without some strapping young males so in the Autumn we introduced three pedigree Lleyn rams. As a result this Spring will see us embarking on our first lambing.
